Tire Group International (TGI) recently opened two sales offices. One is located in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, and the other in Barquisimeto, Venezuela.

Esteban Martinez was hired to head up the Venezualan office. The tire industry veteran has more than 25 years of experience, particularly in the agricultural, OTR and industrial tire segments.

Guillermo Quintanilla, who will run the Dominican Republic office, formerly worked with Shell Oil Co. and has extensive experience in the passenger and light truck tire segments.

"Establishing a local presence in these two countries at this time is part of a new strategy we have chosen in order to fuel further growth," says CEO Tony Gonzalez. "Both of these countries have vast natural resources and wealth, and we believe that having a presence there will allow TGI to further expand its market share."

TGI, based in South Florida, soon will be opening two additional locations in other countries in further support of this strategy, he adds.
